I just wanted some thoughts on the idea of my son getting a bike. He has not really expressed a wish for one but then I have not encourage him. I would feel guilty/responsible if he got one and crashed. Once I rode 2 up with him and he said he felt awful riding, but he is 6'8'' tall! 270 lbs. He sat on the bike once in driver seat and couldn't turn the bars since his legs were in the way. Easy enough to solve i guess with "forwards", bigger bike? Anyway, when you love something like riding as much as I do, you want to share that enthusiasm with a loved one. He is saving his money for a car, and I thought he would have enough now for a used bike and save on gas. Any thoughts?
